[Pkg-netsim-devel] Bug#693393: Increase in .deb size from 2MB to 1.2GB!

Package: ns3-doc
Version: 3.15+dfsg-1
Severity: normal

At 1.2GiB, ns3-doc is currently the largest package in the repo.
Since the previous version was only 2MiB, I suspect this is a bug.

11:44 <twb> Hm, $ rsync mirror.internode.on.net::debian/pool/main/n/ns3/ | grep doc
11:44 <twb> -rw-r--r--  1320450910 2012/09/27 02:36:48 ns3-doc_3.15+dfsg-1_all.deb
11:44 <twb> -rw-rw-r--     2085820 2010/04/18 03:02:20 ns3-doc_3.7.1-7_all.deb
11:44 <twb> That looks really really wrong
11:45 <twb> Same on http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/n/ns3/

On #debian-mentors, nbreen observes that that 3.14.1+dfsg-1 was only
12MB; that the problem appears to be an enormous doxygen tree, and
that the issue appears to also affect freefoam-dev-doc (623MiB) and
possibly mrpt-doc (280MiB).
